“bella jane boat trips”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

In September, we followed the picturesque winding road to the tiny village of Ergol. We had pre-booked a trip on a rigid steel inflatable round the Small Isles on the way we saw Dolphins and lots of sea birds including the graceful Gannets skimming the waves. We were taken very close in to a seal colony, which didn't seem to bother the seals . We landed at a jetty and climbed up to Loch Corrusk, which is bounded on each side by the shear precipices of the Coulin mountains. the silence was awesome, like being in an empty Cathedral. All in all a defining trip to remember on our trip to the beautiful Isle of Skye..

“My happy place”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

This was a fantastic trip, our guide was enthusiastic,knowledgeable and funny. I have employment envy. We went on the trip in early September, a chilly but beautiful day. The trip was a good 4 hours but passed so quickly. The islands were fantastic but so was just being out on the open water far away from everything. Will definitely use aquaxplore on our next trip :-)

“Bella Jane RIB trip to Canna”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

The weather eventually came good and we had an enjoyable few hours out to Canna and back by Rum. Very friendly staff and good locations and facilities.
Would certainly like to return next time we visit.

“Awesomeness to the maximum”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

It was in September that we took the aquaxplore and what a fantastic time we had.....
Puffins, seals, dancing dolphins who followed us, whale, very big jelly fish and loath and lots of birds!!!!!!
We had a three year old with us- and the owners did a check on the weather before allowing her, all of us were given orange suits to beat the salt spray and wind factor. Cana and rum were good as we'll.
we are always going to remember the honesty box shopping!!!!!!
Big Money tour but we felt - very well spent money!

“A truly unique experience”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Dashing around at high speed, bouncing off the waves, the cold spray against your face, spectacular scenery from a different perspective, knowledgeable & entertaining guides/hosts and with the added bonus of possible sightings of dolphins, whales, whale-sharks, seals et al. Definitely a very unique experience and well worth the money spent.
I would definitely recommend the AquaXplore to anyone visiting the Isle!
